Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Barrels and The Mastaba 1958-2018 | Author: Paul Goldberger
Towering at 20 meters high, its 500 tons anchored to the Serpentine Lake, this waterborne project will gather 7,506 painted oil barrels to create a floating mosaic of red, white, blue, and mauve. The most ambitious of Christo and Jeanne-Claude?s barrel works to date, The London Mastaba is a precursor to the duo?s work in progress The Mastaba (Project for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates). Through drawings, collages, photographs, sculptures, and scale models, this book traces the 60-year trajectory of Christo and Jeanne-Claude?s interest in the form of the barrel and the mastaba. This book, designed by Lorenza Giovanelli and Christo himself, spans Christo and Jeanne-Claude?s history of barrel artworks from 1958 to 2018. It includes Christo?s earliest preparatory drawings and most recent works, gathering photographs by Wolfgang Volz, maps, technical data, and drawings, many published here for the first time.
